delivery to all of its citizens. when william penn laid out the city, he actually chose a spot of land that had a lot of groundwater. however, by 1730, 30,000 people lived within the first seven blocks of philadelphia, next to the delaware river. well, 30,000 people caused filth in the city and polluted their water sources. the groundwater was not potable. and in one year, 1/6 of the population died of yellow fever. now, they didn't know at the time that yellow fever was carried by mosquitoes. but the health issue was major in that first movement to build a water system. narrator: so they set out to find the cleanest source of water. although the majority of philadelphia's water now comes from the delaware river, early engineers found that development along the waterfront was causing pollution. so their search led them to the nearby schuylkill river. philadelphia developed technologies to pump water from the river into the city. these technologies established engineering concepts that are still the basis for our water systems today. europeans flocked here. it was a destination point to

in administering the award. and before i get into the issue i want to recognize eric, a fellow penn guy. i went to penn, and it's nice to see someone else from penn in this town doing this kind of work and doing it in a cutting edge and honest way, and i also want to recognize ambassador cohen who clearly had the hardest job in the israel foreign ministry being the ambassador from israel. it's a testament that you're still here. anyway, it was interesting to me that when rob contacted me about doing this, the wanted to call this session, egypt on the brink again. and not only does this have the benefit of being true, yet again, but it's a particularly apt description of what we're likely to see in egypt for the foreseeable future. and not only is it what we see in egypt for the future but it's perfectly consistent with egypt's modern history, and the central drama in egypt is the egyptian political history. rob asked me to keep my remarks focused on the current situation. i can't help myself and i have to digress into some of the scenes of the struggle because i think they reflect well on what
